Actually, no she is just a person who likes useful tools.

Oh I agree. I mean, if someone is really into those things fine, but there is no reason why they have become a default gift.

I don't know how much use she will get out of this, but it will make her happy. And it will look very sweet with a bow on the handle!

Awww the romance! :D Though I confess, all the years I worked in archaeology I could never get behind entrenching tools. Give me a good solid mattock any day! I'm a huge fan of mattocks. (Not to be confused with futtocks obviously...)

She's not actually doing archeology. She is just someone who likes things like that. He says she will like it, and I am sure he's right.

Mattocks are awesome. Also futtocks. (And buttocks.)

Even better! I hope she will be very happy with her entrenching tool. (We used to call them cat-picks when I worked as a digger, though I have no idea where that comes from.)

Indeed. Every girl should have a mattock. Buttocks goes without saying. But as for futtocks.....
